<Smile> That would be Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice. According to
that book Akasha was the very first vampire, because she was the one the
demon took over after what she did to marharet and Mekare. Anyway, that
has little to do with my game idea though.
One thing that book did do, however, is establish the fact that very old
and very strong vampires can throw fireballs. In the Castlevania games
Dracula's main attack was by throwing fireballs. At the time I thought
that was rather odd, not a true vampire gift, but according to Anne
Rice's books it is a part of vampire lore. So including that special
gift in my own game wouldn't be that odd after all.

the vampires was I believe an Egyptian woman named Akasha, who was a
queen during her mortal life and assumed the same position when she
became a vampire because if memory serves she was one of the very first.
